Urban Poling Events

Thank you for arriving 10-15 minutes in advance.

If you do not have your own poles, rest assured that instructors have some poles to lend. If you find you enjoy urban poling, we recommend you purchase your own poles either through our instructors, or visit to place an online order, or to use the Store Locator for a list of retail stores selling Urban Pole.

To receive schedule updates and cancellation notices directly by email, ask your Urban Poling instructor to add you to their e-mailing list!
